Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gillian "Once I saw what ophthalmology was all about, I was intrigued. It was exciting to know I could change people's vision.

When I meet a new patient, my primary goal is to understand why it is they're here to see me. I can only do that by learning a little bit about who they are. I try to be very approachable and listen to them so I can ensure that all of their questions are answered and they'll get the treatment they came for."
